The Easter story declares that we live in a new reality. Everything has changed. Behold, it is a new creation. A new reality. A new way of being. It is the true fulfillment now in time of the Emanuel promise… God with us… no longer ‘up there’ high above separate in the heavens but now among us, with us, in us, through us, as us, the All in all, the through all things reconciling all to the All.
As I explain in my z-theory, the story of the Incarnation announces the end of God’s inapproachable transcendence. The story of Easter declares that the God of Beyond has died on the cross and through the Holy Spirit now is the human community as the struggle for human equalities and freedoms, the impulse for harmony.
It is all here now.
